I received PhD in Computational Mathematics from the Russian Academy of Sciences in 2000 and MSc in Applied Mathematics from Novosibirsk State University in 1997. I joined Laurier in 2003. First, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Mathematics for three years. In 2006, I started a tenure-track position (Assistant Professor). Before joining Laurier, I was an Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Siberian State University of Telecommunications and Informatics and a senior research fellow at the Laboratory of Monte Carlo Methods at the Institute of Computational Mathematics and Mathematical Geophysics in Novosibirsk, Russia.
My research has two main foci. The first one is the development of financial models that can be used for asset pricing and credit risk modelling. Such models should provide a good fit for financial data; they should be tractable and allow for using a broad spectrum of analytical and numerical techniques for qualitative analysis. Second, I am interested in developing stochastic and numerical modelling methods for pricing financial securities. Examples include the construction of efficient stochastic simulation methods for diffusion and jump-diffusion processes, the development of spectral expansion methods for pricing path-dependent derivatives, and the application of parallel computing to pricing financial securities.

The research areas I am working in have many problems suitable for undergraduate students, as well as for Master’s students. From 2006 to 2021, I supervised or co-supervised 23 Master’s theses and major research projects. Graduate students from my research program have started successful careers in the financial industry or continued their graduate studies in the areas of financial mathematics. I am willing to supervise graduate students in the areas of financial mathematics and Monte Carlo methods.
